I'll be working on this later in the week to see if I can get it to the flimsy stage. I'll show you my progress later.

Christmas Package Quilt
I came in Friday afternoon and was going to go sew with my friends. I got off a little early Friday and came home and instead of going up to my sewing room and getting ready. I laid down on the bed and decided to finish a book I had been reading. Well, needless to say, I fell asleep, didn't get to the sewing night with my friends and didn't finish the book either! I woke up and decided it was too late to go sew with my friends but I did go on up to my sewing room. I sat there for awhile trying to decide what I would work on. I have so many projects to finish and was feeling overwhelmed. I decided to just pull out one of my projects and work on it and see how far along I could get. If you don't get started, you can't finish, right? Anyway, I pulled out the Christmas package blocks that I won at my quilt group from our Christmas party. I put them on the design wall and played with the layout and decided I needed to make more blocks. I won 16 blocks but wanted this quilt to be a bit bigger so I made 9 more blocks. Here is the middle part of the quilt put together. I finished sewing it together tonight. Now, I'll be putting a white 2 1/2" strip around the outside, some 2 1/2" blocks sewn into strips for the next round, another white 2 1/2" strip, then a final outer border of a Christmas print. I'm not sure what that will be yet. I think this has turned out pretty cute so far. Here's the middle part to this quilt...
